If there's one thing that completely changed my world during my formative years, it's Harry Potter. I can remember my sixth grade boyfriend receiving it as a gift for Christmas, and not coming up for air until he'd finished it. I admit, I was skeptical at first. And I was completely wrong to feel that way. I dove into that book and never looked back. Attending midnight releases of the books that followed, I quickly became obsessed with the series. Which is why I'm here to tell you about all the Harry Potter quotes that would make great tattoos.
It was a well known fact that once fans have one of the new books in their hands, they stay up all night in a race to finish it. (Looking back on it now, I realize how ridiculous I was not to savor each line as it deserved to be.) And once they finished the books, they begin quoting them. They read them again, and again, and again. The words of J.K. Rowling are truly timeless, for Potterheads, and even for those who don't consider themselves Hogwarts-aficionados. And what better to get permanently tattooed on your body than one of your favorite magical literary moments?
